VOLUME TWENTY-THREK 

1921 



THE YEAR BOOK OF THE 

STUDENTS OF ST. MARY'S SCHOOL 

RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA 



Foreword 

The past is like a book that's closed— 
If we may quote the sages — 

But come with us a little while 
And peep between the pages. 

And pictured there zee see the scenes 
And places that we lave — 

The roses climbing o'er the Rocks, 
The oak trees in the gfove. 

We find the faces of our friends, 
And rhymes, and jokes and fun. 

That tell us of tlic glad, good times 
In nineteen tiventy-one.

GIRL, AND WHOM WE WILL REMEMBER ALWAYS AS 
OUR FRIEND. THIS TWENTY-THIRD VOLUME OF THE 
MUSE IS DEDICATED BY THE SENIOR CLASS FOR THE

Aii Appreciation 



It is difficult for tile* St. Mary's girls of the past eighteen years to imagine 
St. Mary's without "Mr. Cruikshank." and the fact that he is leaving the School 
this year is a matter of keen interest and of deep regret to them. A devoted, 
an efficient and an untiring worker he has had much to do with making St. Mary's 
what it is today. 

But most of all will his absence he felt by the girls beause to them he has 
been a friend who has never grown tired of listening to their petty individual 
troubles, and it is to him that they turn for advice on any matter requiring personal 
interest and sympathy. 

Mr. Cruikshank has had a very intimate part in developing the student life 
of St. Mary's as it is today. The School Songs, the Muse, and many of the 
student occasions which have now come to be looked upon as a part of the round 
of the year had their inception or their inspiration from him. 

To us of today it seems that "Alma Mater," "In a Grove of Stately Oak 
Trees," and the other school songs have always been a part of St. Mary's ; that 
there must always have been Alumnae Day celebrations and Alumnae Day 
luncheons; that the "Christmas Tree Celebration," the Inter-class Parties, the 
"Junior-Senior Banquet," and the "School Party" are old traditions. As a fact 
all of these, not to mention others, have come into being in the past eighteen 
years, and each as part of the general purpose to further school spirit and to 
increase both the student and the alumnae devotion to St. Mary's. 

The progress and right development of St. Mary's and of the girls who 
make and are St. Mary's has been the absorbing interest of Mr. Cruikshank 
during his years here. That others may continue the work with as untiring zeal 
and whole-hearted devotion and that he may meet with added success as he goes 
elsewhere is the earnest wish of the friends to whom he has meant so much at 
his and our "beloved St Mary's."

Alma Mater 

Tunc: "Relieve Mr if All Those Endearing Young Charms." 

St. Marx's! wherever thy daughters may be 

They love thy high praises to sing, 
Ami tell of thy beauties of campus ami tree 

Around zvhich sweet memories cling; 
They may wander afar, out of reach of thy name. 

Afar, out of sight of thy grove, 
But the thought of St. Mary's aye kindles a flame 

Of sweet recollections and love. 

Beloved St. Mary's' how ureal is our debt! 

Thou hast eared for thy daughters full well; 
They can never thy happy instructions forget. 

Nor fail of thy virtues to tell. 
The love thai they feel is a heritage pure; 

An experience wholesome and sweet. 
Through fasl rolling years il will grow and endure; 

Be a lamp and a guide to their feet. 

May the future anile all the good of thy past 

With the best thai new knowledge can bring. 
Ever onward and upward thy course! To the last 

Be thou steadfast in every good thing. 
Generations to come may thy fair daughters still 

Fondly think on thy halls and thy grove 
And carry thy teachings— o'er woodland and hill — 

Of earnestness, wisdom and love.

Rev. Aldekt Smedes, D.D., 1810-1877 

Founder (1S42) and First Rector (1X42-1S77) of St. Mary's School 

At the time of the death of Dr. Smedes a tribute was paid to his 
memory by the Bishop in these words : "I take this occasion to express 
publicly, as my judgment, that Dr. Smedes accomplished more for the 
advancement of the Church in this Diocese, and for the promotion of the 
best interests of society within its limits, than any other man who ever 
lived in it. Under his care, and very much as the result of his intelli- 
gence, his firmness, and his tender affection for them, there went out from 
St. Mary's School, Raleigh, every year a number of young girls whq, in 
culture, in refinement, and still more in elevation of moral and religious 
character, would compare favorably with the pupils of any other institu- 
tion in this country. He knew not only how to teach, but how to govern, 
and to make himself honored as well as loved, and to constrain his pupils 
to feel that the years spent under his care were at the same time the 
happiest and most useful of their lives. He has gone to his reward, but 
his work remains, and will remain from generation to generation." — 
Hayivood's "Bishops of North Carolina," page 193.

The Confirmation Group 

This portrait, representing Bishop Ives in the act of confirming a class 
of four girls, has hung in the parlor at St. Mary's for more than half a 
century. It was painted for Dr. Aldert Smedes bv William Hart about 
the year 1844. 

St. Mary's girls of the time sat for Mr. Hart while he was at work 
on the painting, but it has never been fully established whether the girls' 
figures are the portraits or merely "fancy pictures."

Bishop Rave nscroft 

This portrait of Bishop Ravenscroft was obtained by Dr. Sraedes, 
some years before the War, from Mr. Chas. P. Mallet, of Fayetteville, 
for whom it was painted in 1829-30 by Jacob Eicholtz, a celebrated Phila- 
delphia painter. 

These facts are given by Mr. Marshall Delancy Haywood in his 
''Bishops of North Carolina," and to Mr. Haywood the Muse is also 
indebted for the use of the plates from which the paintings are repro- 
duced here.

JVhe?i Miss Katie If as a Teeny Tittle Girl 

St. Mary's was a youngster, not a venerable old dear. 

When Miss Katie was a teeny little girl; 
Dr. Aldert Smedcs, the Founder, was a living presence here. 

When Miss Katie was a teeny little girl. 
His forceful personality, his eloquence and charm, 
His loving care which sheltered , as it were, his girls from harm, 
Cave a sense of su'ect protection free from outside world's alarm — 

When Miss Katie 'was a teeny little girl. 

Our Confirmation Grandmas used to pull each other's curls. 

When Miss Katie was a teeny little girl; 
For even in the '50's girls, you know, were only girls, — 

When Miss Katie was a teeny little girl. 
The stage coach rolling through the Grove caused then a great to-do, 
The small front porch was full of girls — / fear the windows too; 
You'd hear Madame Clement's pupils most politely parlez-vous — 

When Miss Katie was a teeny little girl. 

flic traditions of St. Mary's -were but being formed, you know. 

When Miss Katie was a teeny little girl ; 
The precept and example of the Founder made them so. 

When Miss Katie was a teeny little girl ; 
His teachers and his pupils cherished deep his high ideal, 
Their successors to the present strive to keep that ideal real; 
To all who love St. Mary's those days make deep appeal — 

When Miss Katie was a teeny little girl. 

E. C, 1020.

Miss Kate McKimmon 

"Con si it a i as the Northern Slur, 
Of whose true, fix'd, and resting quality 
Tlw re is no fellozv in the firmament." 

Miss Kate McKimmon, known affectionately as "Miss Katie" to all 
St. Mary's girls, is this year in her flfty-fottrth year of devoted service 
to the School. 

Entering as a little girl in 1867, from pupil she became teacher, and 
continued teaching without interruption until 1919. 

As "Dormitory Mother" she won the hearts of her girls for many 
years, and her work for and in the Chapel has been a very special part 
of her. 

An unreconstructed Southerner but loyal American, whole-hearted in 
her devotion to School and to Church, St. Mary's would hardly seem St. 
Mary's without "Miss Katie."

The ' ' Thirteen Originals 

Aline Hughes, 'IS, blended the thought of the "Original Thirteen" of ihr "Stage Coach 
Days" and of the "Granddaughters" in her pn.ee verses in the metre of Alfred No-yes 1 "Forty 
Singing Seamen," which were rood at the 75th Anniversary Celebration, May 12, 1017. 

Tlic following versos are an extract only: 

I 
Away from home and mother of} to boarding solnml we rolled, 

Thirteen wondering school girls in the big stage coach. 

The coach got there at twilight, and through the Grove we bowled. 

Wondering if the teachers had noted our approach. 

But the door was open wide, 

Sending golden light outside, 

And we thought they must have noted our approach; 

Must have long been warned of us by rumblings from the coach. 



* 



We learned to love those dear people and East Rock Chapel small; 

II e'll carry all their pictures in our minds where'er we go, 
But when we were just school girls, without a great life call, 

How could we then prophesy how our dear school would grow.' 
He were school girls just like others; 
We were not then your grand mothers ; 
We were thirteen wondering school girls, so how could we then know.' 
We were the thirteen first St. Mary's girls. Of course we couldn't know. 



* 



To you, the girls of '21 , we originals would say. 

Oar blessings now arc with you, as you each one ought to know. 
As we ha7'c loved St. Mary's, may you ever love it, too, 
And carry on her teachings as on your way you go. 
If we had known of you 
We might have been more true, 
But we were only school girls, so of course we did not know; 
The first thirteen St. Mary's girls, of course we could not know.

Stage Coach Picture 

The original of the "Stage Coach Picture," so often used in The Muse to contrast 
the old davs with later ones, was a drawing by Mrs. Gustave Blessuer. Mr. Blessner, 
Musical Director at St. Mary's in the '40s, had it lithographed for use on the cover of 
some waltzes which he composed and had published in 1845. On the title page of the 
music, in addition to the Stage Coach picture, was printed : "The Flowers of the South : 
A Collection of Characteristic Waltzes, Composed for the Piano, and Dedicated to the 
Young Ladies of St. Mary's School, Raleigh, N. C, by Gustave Blessner."

The "National Campaign" to raise $100,000 outside of the Carolinas, with headquarters in New 
York City, was inaugurated in the tall of 1920. Mrs. William G. McAdoo ("Nell Wilson") is the 
National Chairman, and other prominent alumnae are taking active parts in the campaign. 

In arousing the interest of St. Mary's girls in the campaign a very attractive series of illustrated 
posters has been issued to the Alumnae, and the written message on one of them has so much appeal 
that it is reproduced in part here : 

The Endowmoit Campaign 

They may wander afar, out of reach of thy name, 

Afar, out of sight of thy grove. 
But the thought of St. Mary's aye kindles a flame 
Of sweet recollections and love. 

Are You One of Those Girls — ? 

Who wore Quaker-bonnet and shawl; and danced the polka, mazourka, and lanciers, in the 

parlor of the old School? 
Who saw the Grove filled with tents of the Union Army, and played soldier on Hillsboro 

Street? 

Who feasted on "sorghum" and played foot-ball and prisoner's base in the driveway, after 
dinner? 

Who wore homespun to classes, but a blue uniform for Sunday and street? 

Who shared boxes from home in delectable "spreads" about the old "base-burner" stoves ; 
or were caught illegally making candy or rarebit? 

Who voraciously devoured midday luncheons of apples and crackers and cheese, or ginger- 
bread ? 

Who dreaded the writing of abstracts of Chapel addresses on Fridays, and the awful "reading 
out" of marks? 

Or Arc )'<>it One of Those Later (rirls — ? 

Who, in spring, joined in breathless violet-hunts at the lower end of the Grove; or excitedly 
searched there for candy eggs, on Easter Monday? 

Who spent all your pocket-money on Royster, for sweets ; or anxiously awaited "permission" 
to go down town to Cally's? 

Who each noon were impatiently jostled in the mail line in front of East Rock? 

Who every morning ignored the rising bell, and had to rush, half dishevelled, to breakfast? 

Who "dressed up," and bobbed for apples, at Hallowe'en? 

Who joined in desperate pillow-fights; and in "circus nights," with curled trunk-straps as 
tails for the trained monkeys in bloomers? 

Who kept waiting "suitors" nervously twisting their hats in the school-room, of a Saturday 
night ? 

Who promenaded in the Grove to watch busy squirrels, and noisy red-headed wood-peckers, 
and the Riding Club's horses? 

Who drank in the sunsets seen at Vespers, through the Chapel windows? 

Who came to St. Mary's with a tearful face, and went away with a lumpy throat? 

Ate You One of Those Who Count 

"Ax ( )ld St. Mary's Girl" 
As— 

The Proudest Title on Earth 

If So, You Can Prove It!

The Endowment Campaign 

The Special Fund for St. Mary's was planned in 1916 and work begun to 
secure it. The goal was first set at $250,000. Snce this time the general plan 
has been extended and the organization enlarged. The goal is now fixed at 
$300,000.00. Almost two-thirds of this sum has been secured in pledges and 
money. 

The remainder must be had. So all who have any intelligent and real con- 
cern for St. Mary's feel. We want to sponge out the old debt; enlarge the in- 
firmary; create an endowment of at least $100,000.00; build a new dormitory 
to house the Juniors and Seniors ; build a new hall of science. These are the 
chief needs. We say needs; they are not frills but the solid, sensible needs, the 
actual conditions of progress. 

Of course we do not want to make the infirmary too alluring and entice the 
whole school into it; rather we want to keep everybody out but if students will 
and must come in then we wish them to find the place as roomy and comfortable 
as possible. Some endowment is like a life-insurance policy, protection against 
disaster. Our Seniors and Juniors deserve a dormitory house more in keeping 
with their attainments, perhaps with their dignity. Our ambitious scientists 
could shine better in a scientific building. This is again no argument for luxury. 
If they discover no new elements or comets they can at least learn more of the 
world we live in and more of the fine art of how to manage a home. 

So we keep on playing the same tune, harping on one string, if you will. 
We put it in the Muse; we put it in the papers everywhere. Here we've got it 
m the annual. We talk it and write it and print it and go at it again. It may be 
that we shall say nothing about it next year — because by the time the next annual 
appears the fund will be finished.

Through the days of toil ami pleasure 
Loving friendship, smiles and tears, 

Hope has been the word to guide us. 

"Aiming high" through four long years, 

We have climbed the rugged pathway, 
Ended now our hopes and fears. 

Now the future like a beacon 

Beckons on to paths untried, 
Leaving school-girl days behind us, 

II 'here the oft-trod paths divide. 
Eyes still fastened on our lode star. 

Hope our motto, hope our guide. 

Though with eager hearts we greet you. 
Future where new pathways lie. 

Still the love of .-lima Mater.' 

When it's time to sax good-bye, 

Makes us linger now reluctant. 
Looking backward with a sigh.

We're Seniors, yes, Seniors, 

But tec were not always so; 

For it is just a year 

Since we've been Seniors here, 

lie were "Preps" not Ion*/ ago!

Hut still aspired 

To all a Senior ought to knoiv, 

And whether Fresh or ['rep 

We kept in step 

As from class to class we'd go;

As Soph'morcs, wise Soph'mores, 

We were full of fun ami glee; 

Fut then the year soon passed, 

Juniors tee ivcre at last, 

We had to work continually, 

But note tee' re Seniors, 

Yes, Seniors, 

And soon Alumnae tec will he, 

But when shool work is done, 

Life's work begun, 

There'll be a happy memory; 

And whether here or there 

Or anywhere. 



That back to Prcpdom tec could go! We'll owe our all, dear School, to

Good-bye, School, Were Through 

(./ Song of Graduation Day.) 
{After "Good-bye, Girls," from -Chin Chin.") 

We're the happiest girls in all the realm of schooldom, 

We feel as though we'd triumphed over fate. 
We've reached a goal we've ever sought, 
A day of which we've ever thought. 

That wondrous day on which we graduate. 
Of course we've not had only sun and flowers. 

But storms and clouds have hraced us in the line, 
Like every other girl we've wasted hours. 

But now all's done — the future looks benign. ' 
And yet we say with heartfelt sigh 
For the happy days of the years gone by ; 

Good-bye, School, we're through, 

Dear School, where we have met, 
We say good-bye to you 

With very real regret. 
Our day of jubilation 
Is full of fascination, 

But we'll e'er to you be true ; 
Good-bye, School. 

Good-bye, School, we're through. 

We've often read in poems and romances 

That some day in some way, if we but wait, 
The thing we seek both far and wide — 
The thing for which we've ever sighed — 

Will come to us — 'tis so decreed by fate. 
And so it's all come true as in a story. 

Commencement morning with its golden sun 
Has risen upon our sight in all its glory. 

For us there'll never be such other one. 
And yet we say with heartfelt sigh 
For the happy days of the years gone by : 

Good-bye, School, we're through, etc. 

E. C, 1<>15.

"WHO'S VHOl 




Elizabeth Carrigan 

"Liz" is the best-look tig girl in our class and 
we are exceedingly proud of her when she appears, 

which is not infrequently, ready to go dow:i town 
wearing that fur coat and "gold" hat. Liz can 
preside with commendable dignity over a Sigma 
Lambda meeting, but secretly, we believe she is 
also interested in a certain EC A., whose pin 
we've observed adorning the front of her dress. 
"Liz" is in her element when dancing in the 
parlor; she got it for the "Best Leader," you 
I now. And that's not all; it is said that she has 
dramatic aspirations, perhaps it is association with 
Fielding, at any rate, she took part in the Senior 
play and on Stunt Night, as Mrs. Katzenjammer, 
she called forth loud and continued applause. 



Eleanor Hope Cobb 

Eleanor is certainly ambitious. We wish that we 
i/// bad that unbounded interest and conscientious- 
ness in regard to our work. We can't help but 
feel a great warmth of admiration for a girl who 
would give up her spring holiday to stay at school 
and make up some forgotten history points so she 
could get her "dip" m the spring. Vet her ambi- 
tion never engrosses her to the extent that she 
isn't "right there with the goods" when the Seniors 
want to get up a stunt or when anybody wants to 
make any fudge or anything. She's just a fine, 
all-round good fellow and a girl that we admire 
as well as love. 



Page Forty-Eight 



Susan Collier 

Even if Susan is one of our smallest members, 
still it's heart that counts, and there is no room 
for doubt that Susan's heart is in the right place. 
The rest of us stand rather in awe of that level 
business head and practicability that have made 
her career as Business Manager of the Muse 
such a success. Our awe takes wings, however, 
when in the sacred walls of Senior Hall, S. Collier 
makes merry with the gayest of us. 

It's a good thing to know the right time for 
foolishness or for sobriety, and if Susan takes 
whatever career she may choose as seriously as 
she does Muse dues and felt goods we're sure 
success will be her reward. 



May Deaton 

May is one of the two day pupil Seniors of 
which the class well might boast, for Fate was in- 
deed kind to send May and Mabel both to be 
members of the Class of '21. May is always 
ready to help out when we Seniors come before 
the limelight in our sudden flights in the "Drama- 
tic" world and she cheerfully comes up to the 
school for rehearsals at all kinds of hours. Also, 
May has quite an aptness for books and does 
much to raise the "scholastic standard" of the 
Senior Class. 



Fielding Douthat 

The Senior Class is justly proud of having the 
"most attractive" girl in school among its mem- 
bers, for that's what Fielding is. Of course we 
deplore the fact that she and "Liz" have worn 
out so many pairs of shoes "tripping the light 
fantastic" a la ville, but we arc sure, that it's 
youth and exuberance that arc to blame— nothing 
more ! As she herself says there will be time 
enough to become staid and resign oneself to 
wearing one suit for seven years ! We might make 
an attempt to explain why Fielding got it for the 
"most attractive" but — listen to that contagious 
laugh ! "NufT" said ! 




Page Forty-Nine 




Rebecca Hikes 

Rebecca is one of our star students, in fact 
it seems that number 27 Senior Hall is well 
furnished with brains. She is a splendid worker, 
the kind that can be depended upon in an emer- 
gency. Although she doesn't play basket-ball or 
volley hall, still it is Rebecca's alarm clock that 
wakes up Senior Hall at an early hour and reminds 
us that she will soon be off to the tennis court! 

Rebecca is blessed with a determination that 
will surely aid her in carrying out any thing she 
sets her mind on doing, and we are for her! 



Virginia Jordan 



Virginia has the distinction of being the smallest 
girl in school as well as in her class, and yet, 
though diminutive in size, she plays a large part in 
our life in Senior Hall. Virginia is ambitious 
in her studies and goes about her studying with a 
thoroughness that makes her note-books, outside 
reading and recitations always up to date. But 
she does not study all the time. Oh, no! For 
every now and then she finds time to "socialize" 
a bit in the neighborhood of a certain member of 
the faculty. Ah, Virginia! 



Florida Kent 

"Hit 'em high, hit 'em low, 

Mu Team, let's go !" 
and nobody fights harder than Florida ! We sim- 
ply couldn't imagine the Mus getting along without 
their agile captain. The way she plays basketball 
is characteristic of the way Florida does every- 
thing. She goes at it with a vim whether it be 
an argument — she is most emphatic in manner and 
never seems at loss for a word — or studying Vergil 
and making the honor roll every month. We have 
brains in the Class you see ! However, we have 
seen her in less serious aspects, for instance no- 
body could ever forget her as the Turkey in the 
Christmas play, or as the famous Hawkshaw on 
Stunt Night. 



Page Fifty 



Dorothy Kirtland 

There's nobody in the world just like "Pussy," 
and to define her would take more skill than we 
possess. However, making a vain attempt, we 
might describe her thus : Not too serious — oh 
never, not too gay — hardly ever ! Original — very, 
and with it all, the right amount of cleverness to 
"get away" with never studying History D. 

Nobody has "Pussy's" ability of presiding over 
student meetings, witness the fact that she got it 
almost unanimously for the "most influential," and 
nobody can take a character part in one of Miss 
Davis' plays as well as "Pussy'." She's a peach 
of a Senior president and we'd be lost without 
her — Ask anv Senior! 



Mabel Merritt 

Mabel is the studious member of our class and 
upon her rests the responsibility of proving false 
the accusation that we Seniors lack ability "to 
shine" in classes. It is to "Miss Merritt" that Mr. 
Way gives a knotty problem in Philosophy to solve 
after others have tried in vain, and she never fails 
to "elucidate" most correctly. But Mabel is not 
all "books," behind her quiet, reserved manner there 
lies a character and a personality that make her a 
girl one would be proud to call a friend. 



Caroline Moore 

Caroline is little and pretty and adorable. She is 
the bright particular star of the Senior Class in 
Domestic Art. We are inclined to wonder about 
her sudden great interest in all things domestic 
when we recall that this time last year the topic 
of conversation with Caroline was visiting "Libby," 
Charleston, the Citadel and Columbia ! And there 
is just nobody in school who can wear perky little 
curls so well and look so lovely as Caroline. Her 
numerous crushes are a sure evidence of her own 
peculiar charm. And as for dancing she's right 
there with the best of 'em. 




Page Fifty-One 




Elizabeth Nelson 

Seven thirty-five A.M. and "Kelson" is rounding 
the corner of East Wing, running as if pursued 
by demons. Nobody else is in sight, even the last 
stragglers have disappeared into the doors of 
Clement Hall, but, as usual, she makes it. This 
is typical of "Nelson." At classes she always 
arrives breathless at the last minute, but after 
getting there she can expatiate and expound as 
well as anybody, often knowing exactly what the 
book says, but more often drawing on that vivid 
imagination of hers. 

Nelson has a ready tongue, and what is better 
still, a ready heart to work for the Senior Class, 
and here's to her ! 



Elizabeth Nolan 

Elizabeth makes such a good E. A. P. president 
that we are often inclined to think of her in that 
connection, but Literary Society meetings are not 
the only occasion when she shows ability to take 
an active part. The Mus certainly have no more 
loyal supporter, whether she is cheering them from 
the side-lines or is in the thick of the fight. 

Elizabeth has the distinction of being one of 
the few Seniors who can carry a tune — indeed 
she sings a musical soprano— that same soprano 
played no small part in the Senior Christmas play 
when Elizabeth played the part of the Christmas 
Doll. We don't know exactly which one of these 
accomplishments has made Elsie remain so faith- 
ful but we have a keen suspicion that it is just 
Elizabeth herself. 



SUSANNE Pec.UES 

We wish there were more girls like "Sussy !" 
Of course we know it will turn her head, but we 
can't refrain from mentioning that "Sussy"' is so 
much fun till we'd hate to think what Senior 
Hall would be without her. We can't claim she is 
our best student — she has rivals—but she surely 
has the knack of preparing her lessons before her 
less fortunate classmates have even found the 
place ! If it's pep you are looking for, Susanne 
has "got the goods," and if you want an example 
of aforesaid pep, just peep into the gym when a 
game is in progress and see "Sussy" urging the 
Sigmas on to "glory and fame !" You guessed it, 
she's one of their cheer leaders. 



Page Ftfty-Tzvo 



Eleanor Tipladv 

"Tip," the official mail carrier of Senior Hall! 
Promptly every morning at six o'clock she des- 
cends the stairs and goes to the Postofnce. On 
her return she is met with anxious inquiries and 
she distributes her load consoling the unlucky and 
rejoicing with the fortunate. This is just a 
sample of her willingness to do odd jobs for 
others. It is not generally known that during 
botii her years here "Tiplady" has been the artist 
whose labor is reflected in the shining brass in 
the chapel. Music, however, is Eleanor's special 
line, and we wish her the best of success in her 
chosen work. 



Frances Venable 

Ready for fun when mischief is afoot, willing 
to work when duty calls her away from pleasure — 
that's "Hunk." Her interests in all student affairs 
has made her worthy the title "Best all-'round" 
for she's the kind you'd always find in the midst 
of everything from helping with the "Little Store" 
to presiding over Muse Club meetings. Although 
"Hunk" is our youngest member, we envy her 
that dignified air that we fain would acquire to 
give us a more Seniorly appearance. Oh, yes ! we 
musn't neglect to mention her ability to acquire a 
crush with all accompanying flowers, candy, etc. 



Katherine Waddell 

Katherine is a rare combination of talent and 
lovableness that is mighty hard to beat. With the 
most innocent expression in the world. Katherine 
will start one of the "wild rumors" which con- 
stantly circulate the school, that some respected 
members of the faculty have bobbed their hair, etc. 
Pardonable indeed was the desire of the Quotation 
Committee to put the quotation under Katherine's 
picture — it was afterwards voted to Nelson : "She 
cometh unto you with a tale which holdeth children 
from play and old men from the chimney cor- 
ners !" But we readily forgive Katherine for so 
misusing our credibility for secretly, we are im- 
mensely proud of this classmate of ours. Pos- 
sessing literary talent of a high degree, it is Kath- 
erine who is called upon to write poetry, short 
stories, jingles, and plays on all occasions, with 
equal success each time. Witness the Seniors' 
Christmas Play and the Sigma Lambda Muses.

Blue Ridi 



ge 

What a world of inspiration, of fresh outlook and new hopes, do we get from our ten days 
at Blue Ridge ; Blue Ridge, that home of good fellowship and brotherliness, set far back, as it 
is, in the purplish haze of the mountains of Western North Carolina. There is something rejuve- 
nating in the very aspect of these majestic hills— not, of course, that St. Mary's delegates have 
any especial need for rejuvenation. But they have need for the many other things that Blue 
Ridge gives them; the gifts that they can never hope to repay, no matter how great their grati- 
tude. Blue Ridge gives them the gift of an open-hearted sympathy for all the Christian 
religions of the world, a tender pity for all heathen ones; the gift of a full realization of the 
power of honest prayer, and real work in the interests of others; the gift of a belief in the 
wonder-working success of fair minded play. Oh, we owe much to Blue Ridge! In return we 
may only hope to offer it our sincere love, a love that carries with it a definite desire to impart, 
in our best, though humble way, some of its wonderful, indefinable spirit to those not fortunate 



enough to go themselves.

The Literary Society Activities 

The Literary Societies, named after the two leading Southern poets — Edgar 
Allen Poe and Sidney Lanier — have, since their organization, played a leading 
part in the life at St. Mary's. Regular meetings are held to celebrate special 
occasions — Founder's Day, Armistice Day, Lee's Birthday, Washington's Birth- 
da}', etc. For nineteen years, annual Inter-Society Debates have been held, and 
additional competition between the two societies has been in the form of "Model 
Meetings." 

The Monthly Muse was edited alternately by each society under the direction 
of the Society Editor-in-Chief, and as last year, judges were appointed to decide 
which excelled in this for the year; but, whereas last year the decision was 
based on the literary section entirely, this year it was on the number as a whole. 
The Annual Debate, the Muse, and the "Model Meetings," formed the Society 
Contest, which is of much interest to the school. 

The Societies choose annually the Commencement Marshals, the Chief 
Marshal being chosen bv each in turn.

From an East If inch 



7 i" 



A soft wind lifts the curtains; gently stirs 

The ivy creeping on my zvindozv sill, 
And murmurs thru the bamboo rustling 'gainst 

The ivall like ghostly zvhispers; in the still 
Sweet hush of night. And all the Grove is dark 

Someivhere the beams of sonic forgotten light 
Trace shadows on the gray old "Racks," — the walls 

Which sprint/ bedecks with purple and with white 
Wistaria festoons. Soft "breath o' spring," 

And violets grow around and in the grass; 
But they are hid at night; I only sec — 

The Grove, the trees, the twinkling lights that pass 
.-it intervals along the quiet street, — 

Mute celiacs of the closing, busy day. 
The moon comes up, and, sifting thru the leaves 

Her light, makes strange fantastic figures play 
About the comer of the porch; the vines 

And grass and garden plots, the roses too 
Take on new guise. The tall white pillars stand 

Tike sentinels, outstanding in the blue 
Deep canopy of night. The twinkling stars. 

The trees, the columns, all their vigil keep. 
Tile breeze blows stronger and the night is chill 

And nature, sleeping, calls my thoughts to sleep.

Song of the Fi 



fo<>- 



A little frog sat musing ami soliloquised he thus: 

I don't see zvhat's the use of making such an awful fuss 

Because one can't have all one wants and fortune sometimes frowns 

A froggy's way through life, you know, is full of ups and downs, 

So when bad boys come running by and gather rocks to chunk 

I just hop lo the water's edge, and in I go, "Kcr flunk." 

I've got a little froggy wife, and love tier right along, 

Her dresses fit her nicely, but site's got an awful tongue, 

She loves to croak and croak and croak and tear things all to bits 

And if I happen to be there she simply gives me fits. 

But when she makes it too blamed hot and I can't stand the clash 

I just hop to the water's edge and in I go, "her splash." 

To frogs I 'would a moral point, to tads adorn a tale 

And tell how better far it is to laugh than weep and wail. 

First work your z'crv gizzard out to make things go your way 

Then if you can not make them go just tell them. "Durn you. stay!" 

It doesn't pay to sit and croak, so when you've lost the I rump 

Just, hop down to the water's edge and in von go, "Kcr slump." 



Punctuality 



If you see a man walking 

At leisurely pace; 

J list loafing along 
With a smile on his face. 
He started on time, you will find. 
Another comes scurrying, 

Hurrying, 'worrying. 

His face all awry 
And au outstanding eye — 
He started a little behind. 

All the leisure in life, 
All the pleasure in life 
Belongs to the man that's on time.

The first fciv days of schooldom 

Were hectic quite, last fall. 
Matriculation, schedules 

And homesickness and all. 

But when we once were settled 

And wits were sharpened keen. 
We stopped our studies long enough 
To play, at Hallowe'en. 

The Goblins and the Fairies 

Came flocking to the gym, 
The seniors chilled our backbones 
As ghosts in moonlight dim. 
The next event was Christmas. 

But lots ocurred between, 
For all the "babies" bobbed their hair 
And tall ones too, I zveen! 

The Senior play at Christinas time 

Surprised us one and all. 
We didn't know the Senior Class 
Possessed a Christmas Doll! 

Down in the Gym the Christinas tree 

A festive scene and gay, 
The carols in the early morn. 
And we were off next day. 



Page Ninety-Eight 




The same old train that lank us off, 

Alas, soon brought us hack. 
And after us by parcel post 

Came things we failed to pack' 

And then exams, those dread exams! 

We crammed and did our best 
But when we flunked we thought 'twas time 
We took a little rest. 

Infirmary blues, we had them then, 

The worst you've ever seen. 
They grew and grew, diphtheria, loo — 
Re suited- -Quarantine ' 

Oh well, the -worst of times will pass. 

.-lad brighter days will come — 
The holdavs on March the tenth 
Spelled H-O-M-E, home! 

Oh, how the days of April flew. 

And then the days of May; 
On rocks and walls the roses bloomed 
And springtime came to slay. 

And so Commencement day is here. 

And -with the last sweet note, 
"Jerusalem. High Tower." we sing, 
A lump comes in our throat. 

We love our friends, the dear old grove. 

Each minute more and more — 
And then the school year Twenty-One 

And all it's fun is o'er.

We're quite a novelty 
Bui I've seen a sight thai rivalled those 
'Twas the latest fad in clothes 
At S. M. S., when some girls chose 
To practice quite the newest pose 

Of strict economy. 



A remarkably busy time was that! 

With endless industry — 
The needles, thread, and scissors flew 
Thru gingham black, and brown and blue. 

And countless other colors too; 
And lo appeared the dresses new 
In great variety! 





For tall girls, short girls, thin girls, fat 

W ere all caught up you see 
In what was fashion's latest tide. 
In waists so wee and skirts so -wide. 
And what was best on every side, — 
When asked the cost each maid replied: 

"One dollar, twenty-three!"

The Muse 

A Brief Historical Reminiscence 

It is only necessary to turn to the title page to see that this is the "twenty- 
third volume of The Muse," and a little delving into the files would show that it 
is the seventeenth annual issued in conjunction with the "monthly Muse," and 
the tenth published by the Muse Club as at present organized. 

During the past ten years the Musi-: Club has sought to serve the School not 
only in producing as good monthly and annual Muses as was possible in the cir- 
cumstances, but by seeking to maintain and strengthen in every way the old St. 
Mary's spirit of loyalty and devotion and interesting itself in whatever in school 
life seemed to work to that end. The Muse Club has meant much to its members 
during their school life and their efforts have meant much to the School. 

The Muse Club has sought to preserve in the published Muses the record 
of events that go to make up the history oi the years and of the people who have 
had their part in making this history. But the memories of most of us are short 
and the daily life is too full Eor must oi us to do much delving. Sometimes too 
the Muse has failed to function and some of the records are not as complete as 
they should be. 

We want, therefore, at this time and in this place to call to the minds of 
the present-day girls of St. Mary's two persons who gave largely of themselves 
for St. Mary's, who need no recalling to the memories of the girls of ten years 
ago, and who are very much alive to the girls of today in the life they have 
inherited ill the School, though they think little of them by name — "Miss 
Thomas" and "Mr. Hodgson." There is space here only to mention their names 
but even that mention will bring a flood of memories to those who knew them. 
Until loved St. Mary's and St. Mary's girls. Moth took a lively interest in Tine 
Muse and contributed largely to its success. Mr. Hodgson will continue to be 
remembered as having written the words of "Alma Mater." but that was but 
one of his many contributions to the happiness of the St. Mary's of his day which 
extended over nearly thirty years. In "( >ur Eleanor" the girls of 1915 at their 
"School Party" voiced the universal regard for Miss Thomas of all the girls of 
all her years here. 

The Muse Club of today while recalling only these two friends by name 
would however also express its thanks to that legion of other friends — both 
teachers and girls — who have ever co-operated with it in its efforts. The Muse 
of 1921 is not what the Muse Club would have it, nor have any of the preceding 
members met its longed for standard, hut it represents an honest effort to attain 
that standard and a hearty desire to contribute to the well-being of the St. Mary's 
of today and the happiness of the members of the School.

Here's the hook. 

We've done our best. 
We hope it's brought, 

By rhyme or jest, 
A smile, a sigh, 

Mayhap a tear. 
And happy memories 

Of the year.
